Florida Energy Commission
In 2006, Florida Senate and House leaders appointed a nine member panel charged with recommending to the Florida Legislature the best ways to secure Florida's energy future: The Florida Energy Commission (FEC). The FEC members' collective expertise has prepared them to fairly promote a well-rounded energy policy that Floridians can rely on and afford. Commission members have a breadth of knowledge in the areas of energy, natural resource conservation, economics, engineering, finance, law, consumer protection, and other specialty areas crucial to the FEC's mission.
The FEC's immediate focus will be on renewable energy sources, conservation and climate change. But a long-term goal is to take a look at all aspects of the many energy options available to Floridians. Although the FEC is a new commission, we're not going to forsake the wealth of relevant knowledge other state agencies already have. We will ask the leaders of other state entities to join us in our quest to help the Legislature form an energy policy that will benefit the people of our State.
